Description

Details

The Ibanez GAX30 electric guitar comes in at a price that will have many wondering how they’ve managed to craft such an amazing model at such an affordable price. As we all know, Ibanez know a thing or two about building excellent guitars, but even they’ve surpassed themselves this time, and this beauty puts more expensive models to shame.

Body and Neck

The body is built using agathis, a tonewood that produces a gutsy and forceful energy despite its lightweight feel. The body responds well in the hand, with weight-distributed perfectly across the body and neck to ensure it hangs sweetly. This makes the GAX30 comfortable to hold and easy to wield, enabling you to play for hours without even noticing. This model has been treated to distinctive black finish.

Fitted to the body is a solid maple neck, which has been given a slim profile that sits perfectly in the hand, so that running your hand along at speed feels as smooth as possible. Married to the neck is a rosewood fingerboard, which is designed to be slightly wider than average to enable steadier finger positioning when playing chords and/or executing speedy licks. Dot position inlays make it easy to navigate the fingerboard. The double-cutaway body profile removes any obstructions to the higher frets, giving your fingers the freedom to roam.

Electronics

This is the perfect entry-level rock guitar for budding shredders and classic rock players. The two humbucking pick-ups seriously drive your amp and create a huge rock tone. However, subtle adjustment of the volume and tone controls, opens up a huge range of tonal delights. The lack of unwanted fuzz or distortion ensures that clean tones are articulate and bright, without sounding overly harsh or brittle. Using the 3-way pickup selector switch, you can access each pickup individually or create a blend of both. The neck pickup produces a sharp, incisive tone with astonishing clarity. The middle arrangement combines both pickups for a fat, full-bodied sound. The bridge pickup gives a grittier tone that is great for palm-muted picking with a touch of overdrive.

Hardware

The hardtail bridge provides an anchored feel, upholding intonation and string position securely. The nut and tuning machines work together perfectly to uphold string tension and tuning integrity, giving you total confidence in the GAX30’s ability to stand up to anything you throw at it.

The Ibanez GAX30 electric guitar has everything you could wish for: comfortable playability, sweet tones, tonal flexibility - and all for under £130. From beginners to experienced guitarists, this fantastic model will blow all expectations away.

Reviews
Posted on 30/07/2013 by Ben Recently, I started to play guitar, however I soon realised after attempting to barre and slide and my acoustic guitar (classic, very thick neck) that I needed an electric. I went to my local Dawson's store (Chester) and tried a few out, after narrowing it down to a bottom range Epiphone and the Ibanez in question. After playing both in a few different playing styles, I concluded that the Ibanez excelled in many ways. It has a very thin neck allowing my to slide, barre and solo with ease. It is also a lot lighter than Epiphone and much easier to carry.

Overall this is a great beginner's guitar and has served me well.
Posted on 09/05/2013 by BenCon I recently bought this guitar, as I'm a beginner. Through the right amp, it gives a good sound in all categories. It has a very thin neck, which makes very easier to barre and slide.

This is a great guitar for beginners, though it may not suit more intermediate or advanced guitarists.
